Digital divide in Amsterdam, an inclusive and innovative exploration

How can we contribute to a more inclusive society by minimizing the digital divide in Amsterdam? Commissioned by the municipality of Amsterdam, Oostwest (Spring House member Rolinka Kattouw) and the Athena Institute (VU) are working in a co-design process in order to get a grip on this challenge.

After having talked to kids, their parents, professionals and other people concerned, time had come to co-create and develop possible solutions with these parties. Creative power and familiarity with the process was needed and seven Spring House members contributed to inspiring and fruitful sessions. Thanks to Jip, Joris, Anne Mieke, Tessa, Yvette, Shay and Franklin the co-creation sessions were lifted to a higher level. Next move is to find out whether our cooperation could result in an experiment together!
